How to avoid constipation while dieting
Constipation is typically described as having three or fewer bowel movements per week or having small, hard stools that are difficult to pass. This can be related to inadequate caloric intake, since consuming very little food result in less waste in your digestive tract.
Even if you got plenty of fibers, having too little energy from food cause constipation due to slowed metabolic rate.
So, if you’re having problems with regularity, it’s important to take a look at the amount of food that you’re eating and evaluate whether you’re getting enough.
